" -Ainsi, reprit d'Artagnan, vous ne voulez pas passer au Mazarin ? - Ni vous aux princes ? - Non. Ne passons à personne, alors, et restons amis ; ne soyons ni cardinalistes ni frondeurs. - Oui, dit Aramis, soyons mousquetaires. - Même avec le petit collet, reprit d'Artagnan. - Surtout avec le petit collet ! s'écria Aramis, c'est ce qui en fait le charme. - Alors donc, adieu, dit d'Artagnan. - Je ne vous retiens pas, mon cher Aramis, vu que je ne saurais où vous coucher, et que je ne puis décemment vous offrir la moitié du hangar de Planchet. - D'ailleurs je suis à trois lieues à peine de Paris ; les chevaux sont reposés, et en moins d'une heure je serai rendu. Et d'Artagnan se versa un dernier verre de vin. - A notre ancien temps ! dit-il. - Oui, reprit Aramis, malheureusement c'est un temps passé... fugit irreparabile tempus... - Bah ! dit d'Artagnan, il reviendra peut-être. En tout cas, si vous avez besoin de moi, rue Tiquetonne, hôtel de la Chevrette. - Et moi au couvent des jésuites : de six heures du matin à huit heures du soir, par la porte ; de huit heures du soir à six heures du matin, par la fenêtre.

About the author (1967)

After an idle youth, Alexandre Dumas went to Paris and spent some years writing. A volume of short stories and some farces were his only productions until 1927, when his play Henri III (1829) became a success and made him famous. It was as a storyteller rather than a playwright, however, that Dumas gained enduring success. Perhaps the most broadly popular of French romantic novelists, Dumas published some 1,200 volumes during his lifetime. These were not all written by him, however, but were the works of a body of collaborators known as "Dumas & Co." Some of his best works were plagiarized. For example, The Three Musketeers (1844) was taken from the Memoirs of Artagnan by an eighteenth-century writer, and The Count of Monte Cristo (1845) from Penchet's A Diamond and a Vengeance. At the end of his life, drained of money and sapped by his work, Dumas left Paris and went to live at his son's villa, where he remained until his death.
